    I have a 3.5 ltr 2003 intrepid sxt and mine is under the should I go about this one? Just remove the plenum I guess? Since the intrepid is not heating up as quick as it use to and with a hydrometer it reads -45 although I see some floaties in it. Thanks...

    Final note. The thermostat for the 3.2 and 3.5L V-6 is also located where the lower radiator hose connects to the engine.

    According to the manual, you need to remove the alternator to get at the thermostat on the 2.7L V-6.

    Sorry, I didn't ask what size your engine is. The information I just provided is for the 2.7L V-6.

    Are you referring to the upper part of the intake plenum -- the roughly oval shaped housing centered over the engine? It's bolted to the lower intake plenum with about 8 or bolts located down in the recesses of the casting.

    However, if memory serves (I haven't looked this up in the manual recently, and my manual is at home), the thermostat is located on the lower left side of the engine, where the lower radiator hose connects to the engine. You'll have to work from underneath, and may have to remove some other components to get at it.

If it is the 3.5 liter v6 then the thermostat will be at the top of the engine where the radiator hose hooks up to the engine there will be a short pipe where radiator hooks up and two or three bolts holding it to the engine it is not under the plastic intake plenum it is forward of that .

Actually the intrepid was discontinued on 2005 in favor of the magnum. If you are referring to the last year of the Intrepid. All engines should fit but for minimal changes swap the engine with the same displacement (2.7L, 3.3L & 3.5L).
